The internet is dark and full of spoilers – but that doesn’t stop irate Game of Thrones fans complaining about them.
After a spoilerific season five finale that saw a number of characters killed off, including some of the show’s biggest names, fans are angrier than ever at 'inconsiderate' users on social media spilling the beans.
While it’s hard to have much sympathy for people who go on social media after a huge season finale only then to complain about the spoilers in front of their eyes, the outrage from fans at the number of spoilers following the US broadcast is greater than usual:
